Lancome Genifique Sensitive Antioxidant Serum Review



If you’re looking for a beneficial serum that is gentle enough to seamlessly integrate with the rest of the products in your skincare routine, the Lancome Genifique Sensitive Antioxidant Serum may be the perfect option for you. The main antioxidants in this formula include ferulic acid and vitamin E. These two antioxidants work together to prevent signs of premature aging and skin damage. The main role of antioxidants in skincare is to scavenge free radicals, which can cause damage, dehydration and dullness. In addition to warding off free radical damage, antioxidants also boost the efficacy of your daily sunscreen and can help to protect your skin from environmental damage caused by pollution, weather or sun exposure. Because of the ingredients in this product, we would specifically recommend the Genifique Sensitive Antioxidant Serum to those of you who are also using a vitamin C serum in your morning routine, as ferulic acid and vitamin E are known to boost the efficacy of vitamin C.
